OK -- here is one television show of our day to depict 2 marvelous strong characters in a fun, sexy relationship. We have Deke, who clearly through his skin tone, facial features and afro hair is a Black man of mixed ethnicity--if you look at it that way--and the writers of the show characterize him as the son of a rich Jewish industrialist! I guess this ramps up the exccentricity level and generates few more yuks at the mere sight of him. Not by a long shot do I care to knock the laughter, and Deke is not quite a main character so the writers might not want to go much further into his backstory, but being part of a Black audience who loves the show I'm curious to learn a little bit more about his character's background. I think it is cool that he and Max are together, but still, what's up with the brother? Max doesn't know anything about her father; does Deke know anything about his other parent?
Anyone else have a thought on the matter?
And, oh yeah--Max and Caroline are hott!
